Road Trip Ready.....

For Christmas, my little brother and I will be taking a little road trip to hang out with some good family friends out in Phoenix AZ. I recently just got a V1 and Im going to use my brothers Passport at the same time. But there came a point where I thought rocks and bugs are going to be a big issue. Having road tripped a lot as a kid I got to see it in action. So I said, why not go crazy!

Here's what that looks like....



not completely done and not completely perfect. But its just for protection so I dont mind.

EDIT: no longer gonna do the dual radar idea... sticking to the V1.

I think it's a cool idea for temporary use.

Yep - My V1 picks up noisy RD's every once in a while but you can run most models side by side.

That's totally cool for a temp solution!!!!!

And let us know if the two radar detectors give each other interference!

If they don't, I might consider adding a Passport.

for your wrap, did you just buy a big patch and do it yourself? Or did you pay someone to do it, or is it a kit just for the front of the M3?

We'll see... cause I dont know if I'll tell if they are actually confusing eachother or if there really is a $200 ticket down the road haha.
